Dr. Gregor McEwan

Gregor’s education and training is in Human Computer Interaction in Computer Science. However, over last few years he has started working with the Western Canadian Veterinary College in Saskatoon to model spread of disease amongst wild mule deer.

Gregor’s current research is about modelling of Sea Lice infection on Atlantic Salmon farms. He builds computer simulations to investigate the influences on lice infection on the farms to gain insight into how to manage the infections. Currently Gregor is involved in several investigations looking at the effects of salinity on lice, how resistance to chemotherapeutant treatment builds, the effect of different treatment thresholds, and how wild salmonid populations interact with salmon in the farm.
